This is a good place to break the journey north to Strahan if you’re planning on a visit to the Mount Field National Park and the Russell Falls. It’s also a great walking area. Very comfortable accommodation where you can either self-cater or opt for the inclusive b&b and dinner option. We booked the dinner option and were very glad we did since there appeared to be no eating out options in the immediate area. Apart from which we had a lovely meal with plenty of choice, served in our own private dining area; so don’t bother to try and eat out.
Hamlet Downs is in a very rural setting with extensive grounds and numerous pools where we were lucky enough to spot platypus amongst the reeds. We had the ‘King Room Suite’ with its own private conservatory dining and lounge area and separate entrance. It had great views of the gardens and the surrounding grounds and ponds.
Peter and Sue were very hospitable hosts with some helpful suggestions for our onward journey. A very relaxing place which we can highly recommend.
